Cobham wins T-38C military trainer radio retrofit contract

Cobham Aerospace Communications has been awarded the contract to supply Boeing with advanced FliteLine communication and navigation radios for retrofit on more than 450 Northrop T-38C military trainer aircraft operated by the United States Air Force.
The first FliteLine delivery is expected in 2018 by Cobham, and the program is scheduled to conclude in 2020. Value of the contract is over USD 25 million.

The T-38C suite will be fitted with Cobham’s CVC-151 VHF COM transceiver, with 20 watts transmit power, and the CVN-251 VHF NAV receiver, with embedded digital VOR/LOC, glideslope, and marker beacon receivers. Both systems are compatible with EFIS and moving map displays via an ARINC 429 interface and are FAA TSO- and EASA ETSO-qualified, a press release states.

The Northrop T-38C Talon is a two-seat, twin-engine, supersonic jet trainer that is flown by the United States Air Force, NASA, The US Naval Test Pilot School, and by NATO nations in joint training programs with USAF pilots. It supports US and NATO pilot training for officers preparing for front-line operation in a range of combat fighters and bombers, including the F-35 JSF, F-22, F-16, F-15, B-1B, and A-10.
